    H. G. Wells Sends a Post-Card to His Friend,
    Holbrook Jackson

    H. G. Wells Autograph Note Signed. One page, 5.5 x 3.5 inches, Brig [Switzerland], September 22, 1907. Written on the blank verso of a printed post-card and addressed to Holbrook Jackson (1874-1948, British journalist, writer and publisher) on the recto, with Jackson's name and address in Wells' hand. He writes: "My dear Jackson, I'm looking forward to your G. B. S. [Jackson's Bernard Shaw, Richards, 1907] (which is at home awaiting me) with much interest & cunning [?]. My many thanks for it. I'm writing my Jimmy [?] to send you a copy of the two stories so soon as he returns from a brief holiday of his own. I expect to be home in a week to ten days. Yours H. G. Wells". Card a bit toned, upper corner creased, some very minor smudging. Still, a very good item. From the Larry McMurtry Collection of H. G. Wells.
